Path of Distinction by Annetta P. Lee

Path of Distinction
March 20, 2013

His morning the Lord compelled me to walk with Him a while. Instantly I stepped with Him into a scene upon a crystal path. The trail was smooth and of a hue of blue. It ribboned through the sky like a strand of multi-lighted streams.
In the distance I heard the faint sound of music and as I listened more closely, I actually saw it dancing around us like a huge raindrop. Intrigued, I turned to question the Lord. It was apparent that perplexity and expression spawned amusement. For His laughter burst forth, igniting a brilliance that reflected against the crystal trail. This created colors so matchless, so vibrant and alive I can’t seem to name them. Joy and buoyancy so exploded inside me that danced about like a small child.
Only a moment passed before we commenced our stroll. I thought very little of our destination as I was simply elated to be in His company. Soon, I noticed a slight curve ahead and turned to look back. The path had changed into a gigantic loop high above the earth. I was captivated. Despite the clear and beautiful view, something from below beckoned for my eyes. I stepped to the edge to look down, but He gently touched my arm. “Wait.”
As we continued, a breeze swept against my face and through my hair causing a slight quiver. The aroma was so pleasant I couldn’t help but giggle. A sense of freedom suddenly widened in my middle and I almost felt as if I could fly if I tried. Though presently I cannot recall what we discussed, I know the Lord spoke of many things – of wonderful things. I remember at times laughing so hard that tears of affection ran down my cheeks.
Soon, we both stepped toward the edge of the path. I instinctively knew it was time to peer over the side and, though I did, He never took His eyes from my face. I saw restless turmoil upon the earth – to such a great degree that I gasped and reached out for Him. Without taking my eyes from the scene unfolding below, I clung to Him. I saw many whom I’ve admired and respected fall prey to compromise. “How can this be, Lord?”
“They closed their eyes to things they’ve been given power to discern,” He said. “They squinted to keep from seeing and acknowledging the responsibility I’ve given them.”
As I continued to watch, babes lost their way and vanished from my sight; some blended and mixed with Jezebel because the leaders refused to warn them. I began to weep as mud splashed on a spotless church. It became stained in the same colors with which the world was covered. I could not tell them apart. “Lord,” I cried. “Shouldn’t I be able to tell them apart?”
“These are My treasures. Pray for My treasures. Pray now.”
Just as I began to intercede, I heard a strong wind behind me. I was too afraid to look. I continued to pray, asking the Father to invade the earth with His Presence…to separate and give clarity to the eyes of His servants. Suddenly, the Lord touched my arm. “Look now, dear one.”
When I looked, I saw the rain beating hard against the earth. I saw a fence rise from the deep and many scampered like mice to the top and sat. I saw the colors of the waters churning in turbulent confusion, appearing like teeth clawing at everything within its reach. The sun suddenly moved from behind the clouds and the waters parted into brilliant colors. They began to flow and form like a rope separating itself from the mud.
“Look once more,” He directed.
I wiped my eyes and indeed could clearly differentiate between the church and the world. My heart leapt with delight, but He turned to walk away. “Wait!” I said, holding onto the sleeve of His robe.
“Be not discouraged, dear one,” He whispered. “Soon I will act and you will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked. But many will sit on the fence too long. And some of the leaders must be called to give an account of their treatment of my lambs.”
1.  Revelation 2:20 - Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols.
2.  Malachi 3:17-18 - 17 “On the day when I act,” says the Lord Almighty, “they will be my treasured possession. I will spare them, just as a father has compassion and spares his son who serves him. 18 And you will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not.
3.  Luke 17:2- It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble.

No Second Thoughts

Rom 11:29  (AMP)  For God's gifts and His call are irrevocable. [He never withdraws them when once they are given, and He does not change His mind about those to whom He gives His grace or to whom He sends His call]

Jam 1:17 (AMP)  Every good gift and every perfect (free, large, full) gift is from above; it comes down from the Father of all [that gives] light, in [the shining of] Whom there can be no variation [rising or setting] or shadow cast by His turning [as in an eclipse].

I want you to know that I have planted good gifts inside of you.  I put them there at my pleasure and choosing.  Whether you choose to use them, develop them fully, and step into place of honor and favor that they will bring to you, is totally up to you. Remember that it is written, that through the Divine Power of My Son, I have given you all things that pertain to Life and Godliness.

Step into the greatness of My CALL upon your life! Stir up the gifts, the dreams, the talents that I Your God have placed inside of you!  I have called you to glory and virtue.  There is a mantle of holiness and life that I have enveloped you in.  It is My Life. The Zoe Life that I meant for you to live and move and have your being in.  It is found only in Me, by the Grace and through the Blood of My Son. 

You dancers, dance for Me! Musicians, play for Me! Singers, sing the songs that I give.  Business men conduct yourselves by My virtues and My way of doing and being right.  Godly principles never go out of style, nor bring you to ruin!

Let the earth see Me through you.  It desperately needs Me, and I need YOU!  So, GO! Shine on.
I haven't changed my mind at all.

 You have never been where you are going, so don't depend on things from the past.  Don't think you know how this will turn out, or what it is going to look like, because you don't!  If you let Me have My way, it will be far better than anything you could ever imagine.  But that is not to say there won't be rough patches along the way.

Unless you focus your eyes on and cling to and rely upon and trust in  Me (Jesus), you will lose your footing and slip along the way.  The waves of opposition seem insurmountable, but don't look at the waves.  Remember Peter, the only one who dared to step out of the boat and get upon the water and walk out to Me?  It wasn't until he took his eyes off of Me and focused on how boisterous the waves were, that he began to sink! 

I will cause you to ride upon the high waves of the enemy's hand.  I will call you to walk upon the high places with ME.  If you will purify yourselves, by the washing of the Water of  My Word and by My Blood, getting rid of those things that hinder you and thus hinder ME, I will unleash great miracles in your midst, such as you cannot imagine.

You do not know where you are going, but I do! I know the way, for I have went before you as your High Priest and I will skillfully lead you in the way that you should go, only lean on me and trust me completely my Beloved For it is not only Your Fathers good pleasure to give to you the keys of the Kingdom, but it is My constant delight to reveal more of Myself to you.  Never forget, I am The Way, The Truth and The Life.  But I am very personally Yours, and You are Mine.  The Life you seek is Found in ME!

Let us journey on to all that I have planned for you...
Love, from your Bridegroom,

Joshua 3:3 (TLB) "When you see the priests carrying the Ark of God, follow them.  You have never before been where we are going now, so they will guide you."

Isaiah 30:21 (BBE)  "And at your back, when you are turning to the right hand or to the left, a voice will be sounding in your ears, saying, This is the way in which you are to go."

Luke 12:32  "Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom."  

Mat 16:19  "And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven."

 Heb 3:1 "So, my dear Christian friends, companions in following this call to the heights, take a good hard look at Jesus. He's the centerpiece of everything we believe,
Heb 3:2  faithful in everything God gave him to do. Moses was also faithful,
Heb 3:3  but Jesus gets far more honor. A builder is more valuable than a building any day.
Heb 3:4  Every house has a builder, but the Builder behind them all is God.

Heb 3:3  For he has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who built the house has more honor than the house.
Heb 3:4  For every house is built by someone; but he who built all things is God.
Heb 3:5  Moses indeed was faithful in all his house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were afterward to be spoken,
Heb 3:6  but Christ is faithful as a Son over His house; whose house we are, if we hold fast our confidence and the glorying of our hope firm to the end."
